Anyone have a legit set-list? Also, I am dying to see what the Dead played w/Warren. Thanks to the first to post.

PS- Since the Lanta weekend was smoking, was this kind of a "cool down" session? Warren and Derek have tours coming up, and they were "opening" tonight. Just thought the set was kinda short, from the earlier post.

ABB also played Who's been talking, And it stoned me, don't think twice it's alright (with Susan Tedeschi), Anyday (again with Susan T.), dreams, Midnight Rider, Melissa, Trouble No More, Ain't Wasting Time No More, Jessica (without Jabuma) Encore: Whipping post

I didn't notice blackhearted woman being played at all. I forget where dreams was played but it's somewhere in the setlist I posted that's added onto the one that RJ posted already.

I enjoyed the show and so did my friend who has never seen the dead (or any bands relating to the GD), or the ABB.

Both the ABB and the dead put on excellent shows and I'm glad that I could go with my friend.

Dead set (so to speak), for those interested:

http://bt.etree.org/details.php?id=519262

It doesn't appear that there was guesting during the Dead set, excepting Warren. Looks like NFA ended it. Hopefully the Peach set will show up for trade soon.

( If I'm not supposed to post the link, someone let me know and I'll take it down)

Welcome DeadPeach!

Here's an article Eliotspindel posted on the GB...

http://www.collegian.psu.edu/archive/2008/10/14/artists_reunite_rock_bjc.as px

Artists reunite, rock BJC
Reviewed By Mark Maurer
Collegian Staff Writer

Students and adults alike became entranced by the spiritually intoxicating music at "Change Rocks" Monday night.
The four remaining members of the Grateful Dead reunited at the Bryce Jordan Center for an historic benefit concert raising awareness for the Obama-Biden Democratic presidential ticket.
Along with the eight-piece opening act The Allman Brothers Band, the Southern psychedelic rock band demonstrated its skill with rich instrumentation and lengthy impromptu jam sessions.
The members of the Grateful Dead, singer-guitarist Bob Weir, bassist Phil Lesh and drummers Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann, who haven't played together since 2004, performed a spiritual, satisfying and often vocal-less set.
The group kicked off their portion of the show with "Truckin'" off of 1970's American Beauty. The introductory chords immediately stimulated a rousing crowd response. A broad cross-section of the nearly full BJC sung along, cheered and stood up in their sets.
Songs merged into one another, spiraling together and sometimes making the audience unsure of when to applaud.
The recognizable Dead tunes included "Playing with the Band," "St. Stephen," "Unbroken Chain," and "U.S. Blues."
The bands and the political message both carried a notably grassroots tone. Considering it was a benefit concert endorsing a presidential candidate, the
political talk from the bands was kept to a minimum.
The intention was for the music to speak for itself. The Allman Brothers' first song, "Revival," had the lyrics, "People can you feel it?/Love is everywhere."
The Allman Brothers' two-hour set composed predominantly of their greatest hits and a few choice covers - Van Morrison's "And it Stoned Me" and Derek and the Dominos' "Anyday" (a band that contained the late Duane Allman). Songs like "Melissa," "Jessica" and "Midnight Rider" were dispersed throughout the repertoire.
After they engaged in several intense 10-minute jams, they encored with an epic extended version of "Whipping Post."
Meandering at times, the Allman act might have been more exciting if the set list contained a few surprises or Easter eggs for the crowd's high quotient of diehard fans.
Guitarists Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks' engulfing riffs characterized the set.
During the long bridges of instrumentation in between appearances of vocals, both of music sets allowed the audience plenty of time to ponder.
Whether that was the Grateful Dead and the Allman Brothers' way of encouraging people to carefully consider their options in November, it is difficult to say.
Regardless of their motives or the political impact, the long-enduring music motivated a mass audience to commit themselves to the classic sound.

That review was very kind to the Dead, but their set was very sloppy and had a lot of trainwrecks. If they try to tour next year, they need to get together and rehearse ALOT more. The Brothers set outshined the headliners set in my eyes(ears). I love Phil, Bob, Mickey, and Billy..........but you can tell they haven't played(all together) in 4+ years.

WTF are you talkin about??? I listened the the stream from last nite with low expectations, and quite frankly I'm floored (you'll have to humor us with your specifics) My first Dead show was 2/68 and you could not tell these guys haven't played together for 4 years,the set list was rather ballsy, vocals were weak at times but that's a Dead trademark, but they were tight, solos were great,drumming brought back a lot of fond memories,I'll probably take a lot of flack for saying this but the Dead seem more like the Dead than the Allmans sound like the Allmans, it's Warrens band these days, but savor them none the less, cause nothing lasts forever

The show(s) last night! Wow! I must say again, that Gregg Allman has totally come full circle as far as strength in his voice and in the attitude he portrays on stage. He totally amazed me when I saw the Brothers at Camden, then Hershey. I didn't think it would get any better. Well, I am glad I was wrong! The growl in Gregg's voice was back in full force and it gave me such a great feeling of things to come. His health is certainly on the upswing, and I am so grateful for that. So glad...

The Brothers may play some 'predictable' songs on their setlist, but I can't hear Whipping Post enough, can't hear Melissa enough (esp. with Gregory sitting up there on a stool with his acoustic in his hands). I am an old-school fan and don't care what the setlist consists of. It's the sound, the emotion, the feeling that these 7 musicians throw forth onto me, into me, that keeps me so in tune with myself. It's a wave of relief mixed with a passion for the music. Hard to explain if you don't feel it. I don't know what I'd do if I had to live without that feeling. In years to come, at least there will be recordings to help me cope.

Y'all saw the setlist. When Ron Holloway came out to play, I was wondering what they would have him do with them. Everything lined up so well! Then Susan came out, and the crowd announced their approval....and she didn't disappoint. When Susan and Oteil did Anyday, my husband showed me TWICE the chills on his arms! What a great singing duet it was, backed by the best band in the land. Oteil needs to step up the mic a little more, that man has some great pipes! Hearing him over the last few years with his band Oteil and the Peacemakers, I can tell you that he continues to improve (IMO) his vocal abilities as well.

One of my all-time faves to hear Warren sing with the Brothers is Who's Been Talkin'. (there are many songs I love him singing, but this one is a treat for me) And as I was making my way to my nosebleed seats, I heard the first note of that song. My oh my, the night was just beginning.

I had to edit this post because I didn't mention anything about Derek and the rest of the guys. From my vantage point (we moved around because our original seats were so terrible, not taking anyone else's seats, just milling about), the slide guitarist was damn near on fire. How can such a sound come from a piece of wood with some strings? Of course it is the operator, and there was just so much action going on with Derek's fingers that I just figured I should close my eyes to try to 'catch' the sound instead of watching the movement. Butch and the boys, well, they have it all figured out. I just can't get over how much they move up there. Butch throwing those puffy drumsticks around like matchsticks, and Jaimoe snaring away. I just love drumz. It takes all 7 of the Brothers to make me happy, really. And I was ecstatic last night!

When the ABB went off stage, Obama had a taped 'speech' for the audience, once making reference to his own 'touch of grey' in his hair as of late. His words were welcomed by the audience as a majority. Really a pretty chill crowd, if you ask me. Yeah, there were some young Heads who were doing this and that, but no one spilled beer on me this time. Bonus!! And I did see many police officers with no one being dragged behind them.

The Dead took the stage and of course, the place erupted. Many good songs, and having Warren up there made the event even more special (for me). His vocals were spot-on. His guitar playing seemed naturally comfortable and fitting for the musicians he was surrounded by. A decent flow of instruments. Unbroken Chain, IMO, should be sung by someone other than Phil. I don't hate his voice, but there are just some songs that should not be sung by him. Unbroken Chain might be one of them. The jams in that song, however, were rockin'! Speaking of jams, I know that this might not go over well with many, but I am just throwing my opinion down here. Some of the jams seemed to go a little long, or maybe it was more that they kind of lowered the 'high' that everyone was having with the event. It wasn't that it was sloppy to me, as noted elsewhere, but more just pulling down the 'up'. Make sense? I know that jams are what make these bands so well-loved, so it's a tough picture to draw from my viewpoint. I am sure that much of it is because these guys (with Warren) haven't had months and months to practice and make everything gel just right. They sure did a great job, though, and I am hopeful that the rumors that have been milling about are true, that The Dead will once again hit the road in the near future. How cool would that be?

The only true complaint I have about the whole event was that since it was a 'dry' venue, with no alcohol sold, how could they dare run out of water? I paid $2.75 for a small glass of ice. Unreal. At $3.00 for bottle of spring water, they were making a mint on the stuff. Wondering why someone couldn't run to WalMart or Target and buy a few dozen cases in between bands. You can only drink so much soda.

I hope everyone made it home safely after the shows. We had a 2 1/2 hour drive home, and there was a lot of fog, but the deer were kind enough to keep off the roads for us.

LOVE IS REAL, NOT FADE AWAY!!!!!

PEOPLE CAN YOU FEEL IT????


Peace.

One of the few times in my life that I can say that the opener blew the headliner off the stage.

The Allmans were tight and all of their jams at least went somewhere. The Dead seemed to be just meandering aimlessly and I wasn't impressed with their setlist selections.

I was also disappointed that Warren didn't sing any songs for The Dead and Phil sang way too many. Any time Phil sings, it's bad news. He may have one of the worst voices ever!!

Thanks Mudflapgirl for the well written review. I'm of the opinion Phil sings too much w/ PL&F, but for him not to sing Unbroken Chain would be a travesty. That and Box of Rain are the few original Phil songs he should sing, voice or no voice. Ok, maybe Pride of Cucamonga too, but that's about it! Glad you had a good time.

I liked the Dead set. And the ABB set. Just got home. Have to do some stuff but will write more later. Here's what I wrote about the Dead set so far.

I thought they shined like blue diamonds. There were moments of genuine, deep brilliance. I liked the jamming a lot, I started feeling the whole Phil and Friends thing, but I would have liked for Warren to sing lead at least once during the show. And Phil could have sat out lead on one song, but since it was the remaining members of the GD's reunion, well, I can forgive them. : - ) Bobby was the definite leader of the band. And he played the role well. His singing throughout the night was very strong, though his microphone could have been a tad louder. I loved Bobby on Help on the Way - which I think is my new favorite song. I've heard Warren do it too, but Bobby lends it authenticity, while Warren's voice is a tad too sweet. I did think the harmonies were great after the first couple of songs. And also Warren was definitely challenged to stay away from the country blues licks. Watching Warren move into a totally different way of playing was the most interesting part of watching them play last night. And then really listening to the jamming because you could feel that they have more places to go with it. Jeff Chementi is a lovely choice on keys. His grand piano playing is superb. He really was able to take the band into esoteric places last night. And the three percussion players, Phil, Mickey and Bill moved me to dance quite a bit through the night. I did get the whole electric acid sound though and that was the most interesting part of the playing by the band last night for me. I do hope the rumors of a tour are true as I do think this band has tremendous potential to move into so many musical directions.


MFG, nice review of the night.
